house, particularly john boehner and eric cantor and say they have been fair negotiators, they've been lowilling to take deal. >> let me answer that question. i think that's a very valid point. first of all, the house republicans, when they came into office, they campaigned and said that the runaway spending in wk d.c., is for a too much. the american people have to balance their checkbook, why can't washington? they offered a budget plan, it passed the house of representatives. it went to the senate. nothing's happened. in fact, the senate hasn't passed a budget in over 800 days. they came back with cap, cut, and balance, of course. what happened with that? it went to the senate and it died. my only problem with the president of the united states, and having had for worked for one, the same as you have, is that you have to level with the american people. and you have to put it in writing and you have to say to folks, here's where i stand, here are my priorities. this is what i stand for. >> jared -- >> this president has only come up with a lot of platitudes, a lot of speeches, but he won't put it in writing. >> so this seems to be the latest line of attack. the president hasn't written down the various steps to the offer that he's made. i just took you through them.
